the threat or use of force. and that none of their weapons will ever be used against ukraine except in self-defense or otherwise in accordance with the charter of the united nations. that clearly hasn't happened now, even though putin claims he's potential acting to protect the russian populace. >> no, it hasn't, but then again, you know, seen from not just russia, but many ukrainance as well, what happened was not like what happened in egypt with the overthrow of commune im. yanukovych was a repulsive ruler in many ways, but he wasn't elected. a large part of the ukrainian parliament is being chased out of kiev, you know, the representatives of the east and south, the parties which supported yanukovych. so it is highly questionable whether this government in kiev does have any degree of democratic legitimately. that's why, quite rightly, the west has gotten a promise of new elections in may, but of course the question is how one can hold free and fair elections with nationalist militia in control of with you pant of the country and russian soldiers in control of another. >> finally, the west is cl

from the head of defense committee who said that the defense committee looked into it, and they unanimously approve the action. there was the head of the foreign affairs committee also saying that they had looked into it, and they were unanimously approving what the president was asking for. we have the deputy speaker of the upper chamber. they were saying there were militants from maidan who were trained in poland and lithuania, and they also called for the russian ambassador from the u.s. to be recalled. they said that yanukovych was still the legitimate head of the ukraine. so the message is absolutely the same from everyone who is speaking at the moment. the vote has not happened yet. we don't know quite how it's going to take, so we will be watching. >> errorrory, it does sound like steps are being taken for some sort of intervention. does it mean that troops will be going into crimea? >> reporter: well, we don't know exactly what it means. the proposal is quite vague. it didn't even specify crimea. it said that military involvement could take place in ukraine. so

the protesters. now the question in washington, how do you respond to vladimir putin? our secretary of defense gave a warning to russia today like sort of cold war style. it is unclear whether putin is listening. a top russianing new agency says the ukrainian president is staying in a kremlin guesthouse and still considers himself the president and plans a news conference tomorrow. he scened from ukraine during protests. ukraine is smith between a pro-east and a pro-west. the future of the ukrainian people is hanging in the balance. and putin ising ignoring calls from the west to stand down. putin is pushing his tough-guy image these days, made famous in these shirtless pictures. he has ordered war games along russia's western border right where it meets ukraine and making sure the world sees him flexing his military muscles. releasing this ridow of fighter jets training. secretary of state john kerry says putin claims the drills have nothing to do with ukraine. secretary kerry says he is asking the russians to let ukrainian make their own doeses. >> i talked to the foreign minister and we tal

by reconsidering and now building the missile shield president obama has hit. don't cut the defense budget. we have the secretary of defense cutting while the russians history of defense is negotiating leases all around the world. primarily go after the keystone pipeline. take the price of oil because of the world market with oil, the price of oil will go down. the price of oil goes down below $89 per barrel, the russians are broke again. they need oil above $100 per barrel. the heavy political leverage coming from supplying the majority of other parts of europe. it translates into electricity. build terminals so that american natural gas can go there. he has played the long game and is doing it very well. stop thinking we're going to do this today or tomorrow. to this the idea five, seven years from now we are in a better position. jenna: thank you. jon: with midterm elections inching closer, new poll shows thethe holy key edge with ameris on matters they deal about most. new "washington post" post "abc news" poll shows 48% said democrats are more in touch with them on big issues compared with onl
to convince the self-defense units to let them in. people here are saying that they do support these russian troops. they don't see them as invaders as prime minister has just said in kiev even though he says the russians are coming here and taking over military assets and trying to disarm the ukraine forces, that is what is happening here. and we have seen that in other bases around this peninsula. so you do have that happening but people say what lovorov was saying. they say we are protecting our area from the, quote, fascists ruling ukraine and see the protesters as radical to want to come here and cause more instability. i have to say it's very difficult to figure out how many crimea people actually think like that because since we have been here people with another opinion simply is not voicing it. >> reporter: what proportion if we figure it out is there of the people that would prefer to support kiev? >> well, it's really very difficult to answer that question. i mean we do know that the majority of the population, about 60% are from russian, ethnic origin. do all of them back the ru
, let's get right to defense secretary chuck hagel because there is an extraordinary optic out there. earlier today at nato headquarters in brussels secretary hagel issued a warning to moscow. and how many years has it been since a u.s. defense secretary had to do that? i want you to listen to what he had to say. >> i'm closely watching russia's military exercises along the ukrainian border, which they announced as you know yesterday. i expect russia to be transparent about these activities. and i urge them not to take any steps that could be misinterpreted or lead to m miscalculation during a very delicate time, a time of great tension. >> a direct warning from the u.s. to the russian military. so what is going on along that border? well, russian forces now on alert conducting those exercises. the big worry, wolf, is as they move closer to that border with ukraine, as they move around and exercise and train, if that is indeed what they are doing, they get closer to the border if, if, they were to get orders to move into ukraine. they are that much closer, they could move very quickl
of this alliance and i think we should revisit the missile defense shield we talked about so often. beyond that, as part of strengthening and stabilizing the government in kiev so they can transition to stability down the road, part of that should be strengthening their defense capabilities. athink the threat is long-term one they are facing. >> let me make it clear -- resident putin is not operating from a place of strength here. janik overage was his supported president. was out despite his support. president putin is using force in a completely inappropriate invite the would opprobrium of the world. gain fromoing to this. he may have his troops for some unless heimea resolves this, but the fact is he's going to lose on the international stage will stop russia is going to lose, the russian people are going to lose , he's going to lose the glow that came out of the olympics, his $60 billion extravaganza. to have a sochi g-8. he may not even remain in the g-8 if this continues. he may find himself with asset freezes of russian businesses and american businesses may pull back and there may be a
of the premeditated murder of his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp. defense attorneys will say he was acting in self-defense when he fired four shots through the bathroom door last valentine's day. >>> our parent company disney is cutting funding to the boy scouts next year because the organization bans gay adult troop leaders. the boy scouts lifted a ban on gay youth last year. but the prohibition against gay adult leaders remains. >>> the popular machines used to help infants fall asleep may be damaging their hearing. the maximum noise level from three of the machines exceeded the work place safety level for adults. experts recommend moving those machines further away from the child's crib. some models are designed to be attached to the crib itself. >>> and tiger woods is in a race against time, trying to recover from a lower back injury that forced him to quit a tournament in florida. >> he says he'll be getting treatment daily and hopes to play next weekend. he was well out of contention yesterday when he walked off. >>> the best golf shot of the season so far happens to be our "play of the day." this h
't spend time or money developing those capabilities for purely conventional purposes or for defensive purposes. usually when you undergo those efforts to develop that kind of capability, it's because you want to have the opportunity to one day put a nuclear warhead on one of those rockets. so that's the story of iran. massive expansion in their enrichment and reprocessing capabilities, secret enrichment programs that they try to hide from the world, the development of long-range missile capabilities, and then you add to it that we're not dealing with the government of belgium here. we're not dealing with the government of japan or south korea or any other responsible government on the planet. we are dealing with a government that actively uses terrorism all over the world as an active element of their foreign policy. they are involved in supporting various terrorist elements around the country, not just in the middle east but open source reporting revealed just a couple of years ago they were involved in a plot to assassinate a foreign ambassador in washington, d.c., here. not in the
they have [indiscernible] we didn't learn as much as we would have liked about the defense. i'm hoping we will find out a lot more tomorrow night. we will try to get on the front foot and push them back and see how they can defend. we know they have cracks on the counterattack. it is as simple as that. there were no points into the last five minutes of the game. then we decide we are now going to come out and play. we are going to play from the start. >> there will be no farewell appearance before he moves clubs. he has a hamstring injury. kyle walker could return from injury. french international midfielder will remain at paris saint jermaine -- at paris st. germain. he is part of their plans for the future. tennis now. novak djokovic, the defending champion, as cruised into the open,rfinals of the dubai playing his first competitive event since being knocked out of the australian quarterfinals by eventual champion stan wawrinka. next up, russianñgg99Ññwçça7gc
in the area. we show soldiers taking defensive positions in front of the parliament building. when asked why are you doing that, we were told, "we are trying to protect the region", we don't want the chaos in kiev. when we ask the men in black who they are, we are the self-defence unit like the ones in maydan. they are saying that they are safe guarding the constitution of this region. they are saying that they would like to see viktor yanukovych return to the country. they say it's not necessarily about him, it's about having a process continue. they say that they would like to see the presidential elizabeths this year, but not in may. in december as it was previously agreed pop, and actually very interestingly one of the - those men told me "we don't want to see viktor yanukovych run, because we blame on him the chaos the country has been in at the moment. they see his returns and him passing the presidential post to someone else would save this country from chaos. >> what are we to make of the reports that the pro-russian leader of crimea has not only taken control of the military and pol
been ordered walks to borrow tax -- back to barracks. later, and defensive about was he also trying to reassure everyone that force is not his intention at the moment? today, his foreign minister seem to want to push the need for dialogue. >> i won't even fantasize about the possibility of sanctions. we have always been against one-sided actions cannot i hope our partners will understand their counterproductive. >> this is of the first time mr. putin has done the world with a military takeover. he has taken crimea out of kiev control, but he will only take eastern ukraine as a rust resort -- last resort. pushingof wishing -- today the capital, he agreed to peace talks after five days of bombardment. is he thinking it is time to move to diplomacy? the problem is, how to bridge the gap. in kiev today, the secretary state route the promise of a billion dollar loan to the new government. the same government that putin insists seized power in an illegal and violent coup. >> if russia chooses not to do the asteroid, does not choose to work directly with the government of ukraine, then our
giving our nato partners that we stand shoulder to shoulder with them in defense of their sovereignty and independence? do. think they know that we these countries are very important members of nato. i mentioned earlier that our strong commitment to nato, including maintaining the strongest armed forces in europe, all around, but it will be important for other countries strengthen their own military budgets and defenses over the coming years. that is something i have advocated for a long time. i think it would be of additional insurance to them. >> president putin has shown very clearly that under his leadership, russia will not respect the border and the sovereignty of a friendly neighbor. as a president who prides himself in answering russia's self-interest, should he not be alarmed to the market reaction of that? shouldn't the individual states of the european notion -- european union decide -- how can invest in russia? >> that is an important point. i think russia will have underestimated the longer-term consequences of the action that they have just taken because there is an impo
's no defense of what was there. what we need now is not to get into an old cold war confrontation. we need to work together in what does not have to be a zero sudden game to provide the capacity of the people of ukraine to choose their future. that's all that's at stake. >> i want to ask you about syria. for three years we have watched horrific pictures. you spoke of this when you were senator, obviously now you've got the lead role on it, horrible pictures. i looked at video of a child weeping over his mother's body after a barrel bomb was dropped on her and other civilians by the regime. just today this picture on the wire is from the refugee camp in damascus. why isn't this genocide? >> well, andrea, that gets into all kinds of definitions. what it is is wholesale killing of your own people. >> but it's killing of one or another ethnic group by a minority leadership? >> i don't want to get into definitions. what he is doing is outrageous, unconscionable, unacceptable, disgraceful, craven, it's horrendous. and we all know that. everybody knows that. and president obama has been deeply co
all because the department of defense refused to classify the assault as anything but workplace violence. now those soldiers being hit with more bad news. their live expenses are set to skyrocket. sergeant lunsford was shot seven times in that attack, not able to get the benefits he deserves and now this. how does this resonate with you? i'm talking about the proposed budget cuts and what it means to people like you? >> with the budget cuts that are coming down for our current service members, it is very detrimental to them. it's basically showing them they're not worth that much. in terms of war, this is like being a body being expendable, g.i. issue. it is sad because when we join the military they say we're family strong first as far as army component. with everyone else, it kind of makes you wonder is this a choice we really should make and that's a large because we do need to defend our standard of living in our country. >> quickly, 9/11 we had a different enemy than we had on september 10. the only thing we know is we're not ready to fight any battle let alone the one that
